Case Study: New York to Wadswick Green

09/10/2018 Wadswick Green, Case Study

Evelyn and John Pease - Wadswick Green Residents

“Although we appreciate busy New York and Spain’s sunny weather, we concluded that we are now ready for the next phase of our retirement.”

Evelyn  and John  Pease have been spending their retirement between fashionable New York and the sunny Costa del Sol in Spain for the past 10 years but, despite their dual British / American citizenship giving them plenty of options abroad, they found that Wadswick Green in Wiltshire offers a lifestyle that will keep them happy in the long-term.

John comments: “Although we appreciate busy New York and Spain’s sunny weather, we concluded that we are now ready for the next phase of our retirement. As we like to plan ahead and are now approaching 80, we were looking for a property and community that offers an adaptable lifestyle for years to come.”

Evelyn adds: “We were hoping to find a US style retirement village; a place that offers a community feel with plenty of things going on and that has a modern feel to it. After exploring our options in the UK, we came across Wadswick Green when surfing the internet. Impressed by their vision, we arranged a site visit and agreed that the spacious apartments and overall ambience of the place meets our requirements perfectly.”

Having spent so much time abroad, it comes as no surprise that the Peases are not looking to give up their globetrotting lifestyle just yet. “We are planning on spending six months at Wadswick Green and five months in Spain to get the best of both worlds.”, John explains.  The couple won’t have to worry about leaving their apartment unoccupied as Wadswick Green will look after it during their absence – perfect for a lock up & leave lifestyle.

John and Evelyn have bought a 2-bed Courtyard Apartment and opted for the walnut interior finish.

About Courtyard Apartments

The spacious 2-bed Courtyard Apartments are 1,032 sqft (95.9sqm) in size, featuring a 5x13ft balcony or terrace; so sunrise can be enjoyed from the large double bedroom or living area. 

The large living room has an 8’4” ceiling to floor height with floor-to-ceiling double aspect, double-glazed windows, allowing the light to flood-in.  The modern open-plan kitchen, dining and entertainment area features a moveable central unit which provides a wide-open space which is perfect for hosting friends, family and the grandchildren.  It also allows for large pieces of furniture.

The interior blonde oak finish has a warm, rich and contemporary feel with wide boards of natural grade engineered flooring and wool carpets in a warm striped design. All bathrooms feature mushroom- and mink-coloured floor tiles and limestone porcelain stone brick-shaped wall tiles for contrast. The theme continues throughout the kitchen units with off-white worktops, creating a sophisticated and modern living space. An alternative modern interior walnut finish is also available if preferred and there is hot-water energy-efficient underfloor heating throughout.  Courtyard Apartments also have broadband, Wi-Fi, telephone and satellite outlets.

The interior design incorporates wide aisles, low level ovens, shallow shelving, easy to use taps, wet room and step-free flooring.  The kitchen features integrated Bosch appliances including oven, hob, microwave as well as dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer.  The elegant, seamless contemporary design also has soft intelligent closers and hidden finger pulls.

The contemporary bathroom features striking warm taupe porcelain stone brick-shaped tiles with limestone finish, whilst the luxurious 2 bedrooms (15ft 5”x9ft 2” and 11ft 2”x10ft 2”) have high ceilings, plenty of natural lighting and ample storage space.
